Twitter spots Winter Soldier in Game of Thrones season 1 premier episode; fans call it a 'big time-travel twist'

Game of Thrones fans may agree that the world of the HBO show is complicated and sometimes even confusing. While fans of this drama fantasy are gearing up for the series finale, some of the devotees are re-watching the show to refresh their memory.

In one such instance, a fan watching the pilot episode of the television series noticed something out of place and he was quick to share it with others. In the brief clip of the scene posted on Twitter by Kevin Biegel, an unknown man walks behind Jamie Lannister, wearing what appears to be a long Patagonia jacket, blue denim jeans and short dark boots.

Considering Game of Thrones is set in a period resembling medieval times, fans were amused to find the background character's modern choice of clothing. Several Twitter users noticed that he looks an awful lot like Bucky Barnes aka Winter soldier from Marvel Cinematic Universe, hinting at time travel theory.

“That is Bucky Barnes. Now we know where the snap’d ended up,” joked a fan, making a reference to the ending of Avengers: Infinity War.

Both Game of Thrones and the Avengers will return for their respective grand conclusions in April. Game of Thrones will conclude its record-breaking television run with the eighth and final season, due to premiere in India on 15 April. The Marvel Cinematic Universe will conclude the Avengers franchise of 22 films spread across a decade, with Avengers: Endgame due on 26 April.

WandaVision excels as both bittersweet romance and horror, playing off our dual relationship with family sitcoms: we return to them as a place of familiarity and comfort, even though they’re uncanny and false.
